Keanu Reeves Mod Makes Metal Gear Solid Even More Breathtaking

first_imgStay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Between John Wick 3, Toy Story 4, and Always Be My Maybe, it’s been a phenomenal summer for remembering just how freaking cool Keanu Reeves is. And next year we’ll get to experience that coolness not just in a movie but also in a AAA video game when Reeves co-stars in Cyberpunk 2020 launching in April. We’re still recovering over his breathtaking surprise appearance at E3.However, between now and then we’re going to be in a bit of an unfortunate Keanu lull. Luckily, modder JinMar has made just the thing to pass the time: adding a playable Keanu Reeves to the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.Take a look!With its bizarre abstract unfinished angry sad fever dream story and stunning amounts of freeing creativity for a huge, long, open-world stealth-action game Metal Gear Solid V rules. It was my favorite game of 2015 and I’ve been looking for an excuse to play it again ever since. I was hoping for a Switch port, but this Keanu mod might also do.The impressively detailed Keanu character model features his current long hair and scraggly beard look. Dress him up in a tuxedo, military garb, or even his Cyberpunk character Johnny Silverhand complete with sunglasses and silver robot hand. However, this doesn’t change the original Kiefer Sutherland voice. But Snake doesn’t talk that much in this game anyway.Along with just being a fun mash-up, putting Keanu in this game makes a certain amount of poetic sense. As an aging but ultra-competent assassin escaping the amoral forces that made him, John Wick and Snake already have a bunch of the same energy. The John Wick movies are just riffing on Reeves’s real-world aging star power. Plus the lore of Metal Gear is about as dense nonsensical as John Wick’s. And bosses betray John Wick about as violently and as often as Konami betrayed Kojima.So check out this free mod to play Metal Gear Keanu for yourself.

How to have a diabeticfriendly Thanksgiving meal

first_imgThanksgiving is, for many, a day of indulgence. But for those with diabetes, overindulging could lead to a carbohydrate overload and high blood-sugar levels.With that in mind, the food services and diabetes nutrition staff at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center hosted a free cooking and tasting event, aimed at showing people how to cut the carbs from their Thanksgiving meal.“The average Thanksgiving meal is over 300 grams of carbs,” said Robin Hammon, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator at Legacy Salmon Creek. “What we’ve shown, you can get your carbs down to under 90 grams — and that’s with wine and dessert.”Hammon and dietitian Danielle Swearingen demonstrated for about 30 people how simple substitutions could make holiday favorites more diabetic friendly.“Even if you take just some of the ideas here, you’ll have a payoff,” Hammon told the group.Appetizers of chips, crackers and fruit, Hammon said, can quickly eat up a person’s carb budget. So she offered a tasty spin on another snack staple: veggies and ranch dip.The recipe, Easy Ranch Baby Carrots, uses a homemade ranch seasoning rather than creamy dip. Hammon tossed the baby carrots in olive oil and the ranch seasoning and roasted them in the oven for about 20 minutes.last_img read more

Past future collide at Providence Academy

first_imgWhat would Mother Joseph say? What does city code say?Those are questions many asked when they first saw renderings of two five-story apartments, with shops on the ground floor, near Providence Academy.“(Mother Joseph) was an architect, a teacher and a nun. What would she have done 100-plus years ago?” said lifelong Vancouver resident Nancy Denny. “Would she think this is a good idea?”Past and future are colliding at the 19th century building. The Historic Trust, the nonprofit that manages the former academy and orphanage, has agreed to sell nearby land to become home to a pair of mixed-use buildings.Some view the renderings and worry the buildings will clash with Providence Academy’s historic character, like its red brick. Officials with the trust, on the other hand, try to temper those concerns. The renderings may change, they say.“I’ve had great dialogue with people as it relates to this, trying to put people at ease to these unknowns, but the reality is, this in such an early stage,” said Mike True, president and CEO of The Historic Trust.“There’s a lot of process that will engage the city, engage the public and outside influences to make sure this is a development that is compatible with the academy,” he added.last_img read more

County schools teachers reach critical week

first_imgIt’s been a summer of debate between area school districts and their teacher unions. This week, those debates will turn to actions.Nearly every teachers union in Clark County has voted to strike unless pay raises are enacted by the opening day of school, most of which fall on either Tuesday or Wednesday.Unions and school districts across Washington are negotiating new salary schedules for teachers after the Legislature addressed the 2012 McCleary decision. Last year, the Legislature approved $7.3 billion in allocations to schools over four years, and this year added another nearly $1 billion for teacher salaries, meeting the Supreme Court’s order to fully fund basic education.In Southwest Washington, teachers are fighting for double-digit raises they say are long overdue. Districts are pushing back, saying they can’t afford to sustain pay scales at the level teachers want due to the state’s formula for funding schools.Unless the impasse is resolved, as many as 80,000 students in kindergarten through the 12th grade will take an extended summer vacation.So far, only Woodland schools have reached a contract with the teachers union.With the exception of La Center, where both sides have kept negotiations under wraps, here’s the latest on contract negotiations in Clark County districts:Evergreen Public SchoolsNegotiations between Clark County’s largest school district and the union will continue with the assistance of a state-appointed mediator.last_img read more

We need to recognise that performing well and working hard are essential. We need to not abandon the processes that have served us well until now.

Jokanovic says miracles dont exist

Figo thinks Luka Modric deserved the Goal 50 award

first_imgPortuguese legend Luis Figo, confirmed that he believes Luka Modric completely deserves the Goal 50 Award for best player in the world.We recently reported that Goal.com, recently named Luka Modric as the best player in the world for the year 2018 and people like Luis Figo have supported the Croatian midfielder after receiving the honor.This may come as a surprise to a lot of people because the former Real Madrid player, is from Portugal and he isn’t supporting his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, who also had a fantastic year after winning the Champions League for Real Madrid and scoring over 50 goals last season.But Figo has been doing this for the last couple of months, recently he also stated that Ronaldo Nazario is the better player out of the two forwards who bear the same name.Now he is talking about Luka Modric deserving the award and practically stating that he is the top candidate to win the Ballon d’Or in December.We have no idea if Figo has something against Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Juventus forward has never liked it when someone diminishes his fork in such fashion and much less from a fellow Portuguese like Luis.🏅 Luka Modric being named the best player in the world👀 Which players have impressed him in 2018✍ Eden Hazard to Real MadridWe spoke to Luis Figo! #Goal50 pic.twitter.com/FkHTo8Zyj2— Goal (@goal) November 14, 2018Figo who also played for Real Madrid and even won the Ballon d’Or himself in the year 2000, has been making the rounds for Goal as a spokesperson for the website and made a stern defense of the Croatian midfielder who reached a historic World Cup final with his national team last summer.Unfortunately for Luka, he wasn’t able to win the trophy after losing against France but this didn’t matter to the 42 voters from all editions on the publication when they cast their vote. They all agree with what Figo said this week about Modric.“Modric is one of those who certainly deserved an individual prize,” former Madrid star Figo said to Goal.“These awards are always subjective but, without a doubt, Modric has had a wonderful season. “He made the difference with his national team and with Real Madrid.”“For this reason, his prize is well deserved. I live in Madrid and although we did not play together, we attended the same places, knew the same people, also shared family moments together.”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“He is a great person and it makes me happy that this year he has won so many individual trophies.”🏆 Ballon d’Or 2018 prediction:🥇 Cristiano #Ronaldo 🥈 Luka #Modric 🥉 Kylian #MbappéRETWEET if you think Ronaldo deserves to win the 2018 #BallondOr !!! pic.twitter.com/dEuZE0kRWD— Cristiano Ronaldo (@CRonaldoV2) November 10, 2018But the Ballon d’Or trophy will be a whole other story, France Football has been known for having a little more common sense when they deliver their prestigious Ballon d’Or award and this year should be no different.Modric did win the Champions League this year alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, but the individual honor is one that may likely go to a French player after the World Cup success that Les Bleus had during the competition played in Russia.The top candidates for the trophy are Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, and Kylian Mbappé might give us all an unexpected surprise and might squeeze into the final three-men list f players who complete the podium for this year’s Ballon d’Or.Modric winning the trophy after getting so many accolades already, doesn’t seem like the obvious choice as all the voters favor the other players who are mentioned here.Even Raphael Varane seems like a player who could appear on the final list instead of Luka Modric.French journalist Eric Mamruth has “leaked” what the Ballon d’Or Top 3 Podium will be…Luka ModricRaphael VaraneKylian Mbappe pic.twitter.com/txqIsPPGEn— RMadridHome (@RMadridHome_) November 11, 2018What do you think about Luis Figo’s defense for Luka Modric?
